Complainant Name:
Mr Phillip Kurlbaum

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Star

Complaint:

Mr Phillip Kurlbaum complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspapers had published quotations concerning events 13 years ago, when he had been questioned by police over the disappearance of his then-girlfriend. The quotations - which had been attributed to the complainant's brother - were disputed by the family, who considered them to have been employed to falsely suggest that the police still considered the complainant a suspect.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspapers agreed to remove their online articles and to mark their cuttings to indicate that the quotations were disputed.
